A high IQ score does not mean that you have lived a free and joyful life.

Intelligence is not a skill, intelligence is not something you gather with time, intelligence is not concentration. If you practice solving particular type of questions for a long period of time, for 2 years, for 3 years, you will become very skillful at solving those questions, that is not intelligence.

Intelligence is the capacity to observe yourself. What is it? Intelligence is the capacity to observe yourself. Intelligence is not about replying to a question. Intelligence is about knowing what is happening in your mind when you are listening to that question, being alert to that.

Intelligence is that, which observes everything and hence remains untouched by anything.

A high IQ score does not mean that you have lived a free and joyful life. But real intelligence always implies a fulfilling life. High IQ score in no way means that you understand love, and that you are a loving individual, but a really intelligent man would always be a loving individual. A high IQ score does not mean, that you understand love, understand fear, and have conquered fear. But a really intelligent man would be free from fear.

Intelligence is something totally, totally different. Intelligence is watchfulness, intelligence is really, really knowing; knowing what is happening here. Intelligence is joy, Intelligence is freedom from domination, from exploitation, from fear, that is intelligence.
